Goose Creek celebrates at "beach"

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - The city of Goose Creek might be land-locked, but citizens celebrated at the "beach" this weekend.

The 2nd Annual Beach and BBQ Festival was held behind City Hall on Saturday afternoon.

"We do have our special, well-kept secrets and this is one of them," Mayor Michael Heitzler said, referring to a pond behind City Hall.  "Today, it's a beach -- we bring in the beach music and all the good food and the shag and we're at the beach."

The free family-friendly festival featured live music by The Local Motion Party Band, as well as local barbeque restaurants selling food.

"Goose creek is best place in South Carolina to raise families," Heitzler said.  "It's also the best place to retire.  It's the best place to live a good life -- that's what today is all about."
